Ever since LEGO Cuusoo (now LEGO Ideas) released the “Back to the Future” DeLorean Time Machine (21103), fans knew. They somehow knew, nearly a decade after that set’s release, that the time machine car would be revisited LEGO-wise. Sure, there have been false alarms, like last year’s alleged new DeLorean being a Creator Expert Pickup Truck (10290) instead. But fans of LEGO Back to the Future (repped by long-retired one-off sets) never lost hope. The latest rumors insisted that the DeLorean will return in the LEGO Creator Expert line this year. And so it did.
We’re happy to share thanks to news from Brickset that the iconic DeLorean is back in official brick-built form. Say hi to the Creator Expert Back to the Future Time Machine (10300). Doc Brown’s DeLorean comes with enough accessories to depict its various configurations across the “Back to the Future” trilogy. The Doc and Marty are also available in minifig form, even if their ride isn’t to scale with them. The April 1 release date checks out, and thankfully it won’t be a joke. At last, collectors that have waited some time can soon get their hands on this set. Here’s some official listing snippets:
